A mother and daughter were found deἀd in their home in Roselle, New Jersey, on Wednesday (19 April). A man who is thought to have kἰlled them is being held in Maryland.
Authorities said that the horrible thing they found in the West 7th Avenue home was likely the result of a fight between family members.
Atasha Scott, the sister-in-law of the woman who was kἰlled, told Eyewitness News reporter Toni Yates that an axe was used to kἰll Keisha Morrison and her 9-year-old daughter.
Scott says that her brother Gary Morrison is kind and that he loved his wife Keisha, their daughter Kelsey, and the rest of their older children, making a mixed family.

She says that giving was in his heart, which is why he didn’t think twice about letting his poor half-brother Everoy Morrison live in his basement for two years.
But, according to the family, things got bad when the couple’s older girls and their mother started to worry. Scott said –
“She said she wanted him out he says he would leave before the end of the month.”
“But he didn’t, he didn’t leave. He murdered them.”
Kelsey’s bigger sisters called their father Gary Morrison on Wednesday morning and told him that when they woke up, they saw blood on the walls of their little sister’s bedroom. People say that the older sisters were scared and hid in a room while their uncle was up on the second floor.
The father then came home. After a short talk with his brother Everoy, Gary went upstairs and found a bloody axe under a mattress and his deἀd wife and daughter wrapped in sheets under a bed.
As police were coming, the family says the uncle ran away in his sister-in-law’s car and made it down to Maryland, where police confirmed that he was caught.
Schools in Roselle were locked down for a short time on Wednesday, and students stayed put out of fear of a possible crime. The lockdown was lifted in the afternoon when it was decided that there was no danger to the public.
Neighbors said that the people who dἰed were a nice family who always went on trips and did things together. A neighbor named Rosie said –
“It’s heartbreaking, who does that to a family, period, but to a baby girl who’s defenseless, I’m in the military so it’s hard to see this, I will never ever get used to having to face something like this.”
Kelsey would have turned 10 on Sunday, which would have been her birthday.
